Netgamers technical difficulties – Resolved

Saturday, June 25th, 2011

If you’re a IRC user, you’ll probably have noticed they are having some technical difficulties at the moment which have taken the whole domain off the web. The IRC infrastructure is, from what I can see all up and running (certainly there is at least one server up along with the services bot P), but you will need to connect to:-

As soon as I know the DNS issues are sorted, I’ll pop up an update post.

Update (19th Nov 2011 – a bit late I know, but better late than never) – They appear to have resolved the problems that beset them earlier in the year.  I’m not sure when it all got sorted, but from what I can gather it was down to an expired domain name.

Linked Pages Version 0.2.3 Released

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Linked Pages Version 0.2.3 has just been released. This version adds a menu facility which uses the current posts ‘link field’ content to find pages that are also linked to the parent page (allowing a more menu like operation from the widget). The configuration of this feature is available on the widget control panel in the ‘Search For Similar’ section.

As usual, it’s available from the WordPress plugin directory, comments/questions can be left here and the somewhat sparse wiki is available here.

Over the course of last weekend (Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th June), I wrote another WordPress plug-in, which I have just released for public consumption in the form of my Linked Pages plug-in. I got a comment about ACFW from a guy called Emerson who wanted to use it generate links from page to page in his site

Turns out ACFW wasn’t the right tool for the job, after trying to find something suitable for him I figured it would be easier to write a plug-in to meet his needs and so my Linked Pages plug-in came into being. I didn’t link to his site on release day as he wasn’t quite ready, but now he is I figured I’d post and let everyone that’s a regular reader know about his site.

I think it’s a great concept and he’s done a great job on it, so pop on over and check it out. I think it’s a really good example of what you can do with platforms like WordPress these days.

Linked Pages Version 0.2.1 Released

Sunday, June 5th, 2011

Seems my collection of plug-ins is growing…. enter Linked Pages. This was created in response to a user request, but more on that later when he’s finished his site.
